If you’re in London over the next couple days, make sure to stop by the Moniker Fair. There are some great galleries involved, plus site specific installations by Stephen Powers (above) and Ben Eine.
The Creators Project reminded me of TOON TOWN raves in San Francisco in the early 90′s where magazines like MONDO 2000 and people developing virtual reality would bring all their technology and demo it to an amazed public.. This time however the public aren’t on weapons grade psychedelics and are more likely to be wearing black, not wearing brightly coloured orange camo and waving glowsticks. The best and most moving part of the whole event was really the centerpiece, ‘IM HERE’ by the always amazing Spike Jonze, centered around two urban robots falling in love and subsequently falling apart. Theres also a SICK thing called [Z]ink that lets you draw things in 3D. I have been grumbling about the speedy change of gentrification/development/proliferation of gadgets/progress recently but I realise that what is actually happening is that the future is actually catching up with our own image of what we think ‘THE FUTURE’ will be.. This whole event feels like a part of this futuristic realisation… Its really exciting and fun. There’s also gonna be a heck of a lot of music stuff going on with Diplo/CSS/N.A.S.A/UVA/Brodinski/Laurent Garnier/Richie Hawtin/Peaches and a bunch of other people doing what they do. Nice one VICE, nice one Intel.

As far as I am concerned freerun was made famous in the Jame Bond film Casino Royale. I know you may disagree but, that’s my opinion. Anyway, Barclaycard and the World Freerun Championship event is in London this weekend at Trafalgar Square, for more info and the Bond scene click after the jump.

“London-based Pablo Bronstein is a young artist floating out of time. His is an eye that can, say, synthesize the dripping, ornate grandeur of European Rococo architecture with the juvenile, weird, building-block edifices of the 1980s. In A Guide to Postmodern Architecture in London, a short book published by Walther Konig in 2008, Bronstein made it look obvious, and perfect. Bronstein’s indulgence educates selflessly, for his is an art that encourages others to look harder and draw the most from their own obsessions. In October 2006, the artist dryly guided a coach tour around London to share his discoveries.” Thanks to FNP for the tip.
“I think it’s the duty of any civilised country to provide refugees with the basics of human survival. Just because I personally only change my pants once every six weeks doesn’t mean every asylum seeker should have to do the same.”

Over the past couple days, Banksy has blessed the public with two new pieces. This miniature b-boy (above) is picture perfect and the fact that Banksy integrated the wall into the piece makes it that much better. Check after the jump for a detail shot, as well as the other piece Banksy put up.
